Religious conservatism as a chance or constraint for progress?
In a secularized world, religion is often negatively connoted and liberal forces tend to see religion as a boundary for a liberal world. One argument which is often brought forth is the alleged radicalism of believers and the normative character of churches which is said no to be according to our times anymore.

On Genesis 1:2
The Creation of the world was a complex issue. While we learn in Genesis 1:1 the simple information that God created the Heavens and the Earth – many Heavens, but only one Eart, the following verses continue solely to speak of the Earth. The Earth “must have been in a state of chaos as itContinue reading “On Genesis 1:2”
On Genesis 1:1
Genesis 1:1 informs us that in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, which is the very first phrase of the Torah.

Philosophy enlightens our path to realize God’s Creation!
Philosophy—God honor you—is broad and great, and to strive for her is a duty and honorific; for she enlightens the intellect and the soul with the light of eternal beauty when they strive for her, and when they have grasped her meaning and reason for cause of life, she lets them renounce this transitory perishingContinue reading “Philosophy enlightens our path to realize God’s Creation!”
Allegory on reductionism
Already a few times, I pointed out that the world is too complex to reduce everything to materialism, which means that something must exist beyond. So any Atheist materialist assumption as a starting point to explain the world has to be ruled out. Recently, I have read a very nice phrase which sums this upContinue reading “Allegory on reductionism”
